Men In The Arena Film Still

The unforgettable story of two Somalia National Soccer Team friends chasing professional dreams in the face of impossible odds.

Somalia is a country divided by war, poverty and politics, but hope is alive in the hearts of their national soccer team. Part sports doc, part war chronicle, “Men In The Arena” is a truly unique story that captures how world events, technology, and personal stories can collide with unexpected results. The film is helmed by 2728 Pictures’ JR Biersmith. Media Meld Studios partner, Brian Bellinkoff, wore many hats including producer, cinematographer and editor on this international feature length documentary.

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.”
